It seems the last time we did the Whole30 was maybe five years ago. I remember it well, very well. The last time we did it, Blue Eyes was hospitalized on Day 27. Funny, not funny. I also did learn a few things about myself after blood work. Although my blood sugars go down (a … Continue reading Back to the Whole30, again

Healthy Eating: Plantain Tostadas
No joke, people. In honor of American Independence Day this weekend and the thousands of pies that will be consumed, here I sit, a chubby ball of sugar (and dare I say it, fat) almost always thinking about eating healthy. I really do love the idea of the Whole30 eating plan. I love everything about … Continue reading Healthy Eating: Plantain Tostadas
Accountability Report: Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Accountability Report. Time to check back in.
We are home. Hallelujah. Traveling is fun, until it isn't. Returning home after a long trip away usually finds me bouncing back and forth between happy exhaustion and anxiety over getting back into a routine. We returned home Thursday night and I must say, I was happy exhausted (no debilitating anxiety this time from returning to … Continue reading Accountability Report. Time to check back in.
Accountability Report. Week Two
I'm still doing well on my self prescribed health plan, and living high on the power of music again this week. For inspiration to get back on that elliptical after a minor ankle tweak, I changed up my exercise play list, which got me digging around in my music library. I happened upon one of … Continue reading Accountability Report. Week Two
